357 Magnum
Youtube ^ | 28 June, 2010 | Hickok45

Posted on 07/02/2010 12:46:39 PM PDT by Errant

Did you know that the 28th of June, 2010 was the 75th anniversary of the 357 magnum which was introduced in 1935?

A windy but great video with much information for anyone interested in the 357 magnum handgun. Great shooting by Hickok45 starting 9 minutes into the video.

Fine Pistol if it is made by S/W. But there is a bunch of junk on the market.

I like unique powder as well. It’s pretty darn flexible but smoky sometimes when using cast bullets with bullet lubricant.

Major Smith fan, I.
However I like the style and feel of my Python 6 “ blue, which I bought new in ‘74 from my uncle’s basement gun shop (remember when the ATF stopped by for coffee ?)
I have a brace of Smiths in .22 and .38 from the 50s and 60s and I think they may be the best. The Python is unique, however.

It is a genuine Smith from 1978. My favorite story is how I acquired it.

I was stationed at Mtn. Home AFB, Mtn. Home, ID. I was helping a friend move from the base to Boise, ID, about 50 miles away. It was late and I decided to spend the night with him rather than drive back.

So I went to a drug store to buy a toothbrush and some toothpaste. While there, I noticed that this drug store, a CVS or Rite-Aid like place, had a little glass case in the corner and they were selling handguns and knives.

With my toothbrush and toothpaste in hand, I went over to look at the offerings. The cashier said she could ring me up there, and asked if there was anything else. I saw the S&W Model 19, 4" barrel, at a great price, so I said "yup, that one, please."

This was 1978, so there were no waiting periods, no background checks. Filled out the federal paperwork and walked out with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a handgun.

Only in America (or used to be...)

That's a S&W 686+ .357, That one is not mine but I have the same one. I have a couple speed loaders, but never have used moon clips.

http://www.midwayusa.com/ or http://www.brownells.com/ would be a good place to buy a present for Mrs. L.

I love my S&W pre-27 5-screw N-frame.

Its a "safe queen", too valuable to use for home defense.

I know DW is under new management, any trouble finding parts for those? I would like to get a little shorter barrel. On the other hand, I wouldn’t mind getting the longest available, and making a carbine stock for it.

My favorite too. My small S&W collection has Model 19s in three barrel lengths, and my carry gun is a Model 66 snubbie.

Not yet but I will be looking to get it at a gun show at the end of July. I just got a new and rarely used Ruger 10/22 Sporter Carbine this past Saturday with a Simmons 22 MAG 3-9x32 scope for $300.

That is sweet! I love the Ruger revolvers, they are built like tanks. One of my .357 Magnums is a Ruger SP101 which I just love.

I intend to add the following Rugers to my collection

GP-100 KGP-161 SS .357 Magnum
Super Redhawk KRSH9440 .44 Magnum
Super Redhawk KRSH7480 .480 Ruger
Super Redhawk KRSH7454 .454 Casull

Similar story. I had just arrived in the summer in Fairbanks AK, was going out Grayling fishing and stopped in a sport shop to get geared up for flyfishing. I noticed a glass counter on the way out with some revolvers and one had a decent price for it's caliber, a Hawes .44 mag Western Marshall. Felt more comfortable walking by those 10 inch wide bear tracks in the mud fishing after that. I think I paid around one hundred and some small change.

yeah I noticed that with using it in 9mm as well. use 5.4gr with a 115gr fmj. shooting it in a Browning HP leaves all kinds of residue around the ejection port
